The book of Our Oriental Heritage was copyrighted in 1935 by Will Durant and copyright was renewed in 1963. Books on Tape Incorporated hold the copyright on this recording which was produced in 1994. Prior written consent is required for any reproduction.

This information is all on the recording. I haven't listened to any of the others, but I would think they all say the same.

(Make two separate folders in your C: drive, they will be named "FakeDisk" and "PCGames" from now on, you can choose to make the names different later on [code]C:\FakeDisk ; C:\PCGames[/code]

Put the mounts in the Dosbox options. TO DO THIS, go to [code]Start>All Programs(For vista)>DOSBOX 1.74 > Options > DosboxOptions[/code]

That's very heplful Detective, thanks.

maybe something else you could give me a pointer on - the reason I uploaded this is to make an m4b file available, the two files for volume 1 totaling about 460 megs, but on downloading, archive.org has made the two files into a 1 gigabyte zip file, or into two ogg files (who uses ogg anyway?)

Wondered if you could advise on keeping the files exactly as they are, which anyroad would save archive.org 1.3 gigabytes or more for each of the 11 volumes I upload, instead of having the oversized zip or the ogg files, just having the original m4b files...?

Thanks!

Hi John
These audiobooks files have disappeared from the archive.org website, any idea why?
